University of Michigan Research Studio
McIntosh Poris Associates was engaged by the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning to design the Michigan Research Studio. Located on the ground floor of the mixed-use Woodward Garden Apartments (a ground-up building designed by McIntosh Poris Associates) in Detroit the 3,715-square-foot open facility emulates a collegiate design studio, emphasizing creative learning through multiple teaching environments in the same space. The floor plan provides flexibility for seminars, lectures, student exhibitions, and teaching fellows conducting architectural research.
